    Have Wally World rip-stop but no thread injector

    How do I remedy my situation. My GTUL decided it wanted to rip in half before I even got it out for my first overnight hang. What to do what to do? Anybody have the link to that old thread on choosing a thread injector?

    You can check the guidelines thread in my sig. That might the one and others seem to have found it helpful. Ask around among your female friends of a certain age. I'll bet one is lurking around in an attic, basement or closet.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Sewing machine specialty retailers usually have an inventory of trade in machines that have been gone over, oiled, greased and fine tuned for cheap to reasonable prices. Got my 1957 Emdeko injector for $50 with a 30 day warranty, some instructions and lots of support to help with the operator failures as I learned.

    Picked up one of my thread injectors at a yard sale for $4 - thing is a beauty. Simple oil, grease, and she was good to go.

    Classifieds as well... but RamblinRev is the guru in the sewing realm

    Not entirely sure I trust myself picking out a thread injector from a yard sale or thrift store...

    Nice looking Morse there

    Google is your friend, with a bit of looking you can download one for free

    This thing is so shiny I can see myself in it and I'll be finding out how well it works once I get a small enough screwdriver to tighten the screw holding the thread tensioner in place. Still haven't found any free manuals on google perhaps in the next few days. Just want to find out how to oil it properly.

    Search for "morse fotomatic III model 4300". Haven't found a free download yet, but here's a manual for $4.99
